Five thousandths of an inch is insignificant once the clamps come out.

That said, I do all my edge prep for panel glueups at the jointer. Layout your boards as they will be situated in the panel. Mark one board edge as “O” and the neighboring board edge as “I”. Continue labeling each board edge this way. Then joint the “O’s” with the top face outside or away from the jointer fence. The “I’s” get jointed with the top face inside or towards the jointer fence. This way even if your jointer fence is slightly off 90 degrees, the panel will still be perfectly flat.
